Foszcz retires from ‘second’ career as editor

Most of us are perfectly happy with one career that sustains us and fulfills us and for which we receive a modest level of recognition. Joe Foszcz has had two. Our senior-most senior editor retires in October after 18 years sharing with PLANT ENGINEERINGS readers the knowledge he gained from his years as a plant engineer himself.

Most of us are perfectly happy with one career that sustains us and fulfills us and for which we receive a modest level of recognition. Joe Foszcz has had two.

Our senior-most senior editor retires in October after 18 years sharing with PLANT ENGINEERINGS readers the knowledge he gained from his years as a plant engineer himself. He is proof that the old saw, “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach” is all wrong. As a Certified Plant Engineer, he did what you do on a daily basis, then came to PLANT ENGINEERING and helped teach those lessons to our readers.

Joe is held in the highest esteem in both the publishing and engineering fraternities. He is both a gentleman and a scholar — a rare combination in this day. We cannot simply replace Joe Foszcz, because they simply don’t manufacture his kind any longer.

Joe will attempt one last great engineering feat in his retirement — the re-engineering of his golf swing. We wish Joe and his wife Mary nothing but the best as they venture off to this great new career, and we thank him for his steadfast commitment to excellence in the pages of PLANT ENGINEERING, and his commitment to engineering as a profession and a discipline.
